Interesting that the hat hides face from anyone looking at them.
I thought so too Fred.
Thank you Kathy.
Splendid William! I do love images like this one…they lure me into a different world…
Thank you Karen. Japan is such an amazing place.
Hand held was very sensible. If you had whipped out the tripod and all the gear, you might have frightened the poor bugger. I’d kill for that hat.
It’s a very cool hat! I think you’d look great in it Gary :)
Beautifully shot, love the background formed by the red and black characters and the bowl tilted away from the shadows under the hat. Terrific image William.
Thank you Georgie.
Fantastic capture! I was in Japan recently and took a similar image but the monk was quite angry with me. I wonder if it was the wrong thing to do.
Thank you. Yes, I was across the street and used my telephoto lens.
Splendid capture, William! The essence of Japan :)
Thank you Denitsa.
